Ever since I purchased my first essential oil in 1983, I have been fascinated by aromatherapy. This took me on my fascinating journey into natural therapies, acupuncture and aromatherapy to where I am today. I believe that aromatherapy has the potential to be a major catalyst for changing the way health care is provided around the world. However, aromatherapy has also since its inception been open to commercial exploitation. I love the fact that aromatherapy has become more popular than ever; however, it is imperative that essential oils are used safely and with integrity. This website is a platform to share my passion and knowledge of aromatherapy in an enjoyable but safe and professional way. This website will keep you up to date with the latest research and trends in aromatherapy and the use of essential oils. I look forward to your feedback, questions and comments. This will be a constant work in progress site. Please have an awesome day wherever you may be.
Robbi’s partner, Jim, reminded me that it was at one of the first ever NAHA conferences in Seattle when I gave Robbi the advice to write a book if you want to be taken seriously. I am ever so grateful that Robbi did take my advice because she created a book that provides us with such a beautiful, unique insight into the psycho-spiritual qualities of essential oils.
The title of Robbi’s book is perfect! Every time I read one of her essential oil reflections, my heart does blossom!
I love the way Robbi beautifully articulates the subtle and psychospiritual qualities of each essential oil. For example, Robbi describes one of my favourite oils:
The fragrance of cistus is warmly settling and quietens the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. … Cistus soften the effects of emotional pain and eases the pressure of a heavy heart. Gently rub Cistus over your heart centre to bring serenity to your soul in the midst of a crisis.
This beautifully insightful book reveals to us the subtle qualities of essential oils in such a graceful way. I love the way that Robbi has integrated kinesiology, acupressure, and aromatherapy to provide us with a powerful tool for personal growth and transformation. This book has always been one of my favourites. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
